Effective May 18th, 2021, following the guidance of the CDC and Governor Walz Executive Order 21-23, masks and social distancing are not required in Clay County buildings or property. However, people who are not fully vaccinated – two weeks since final vaccine dose – are strongly recommended to wear face coverings indoors and practice social distancing. The County will also continue to support the public and staff who choose to wear a mask while in County buildings and vehicles. Fully vaccinated people should also continue to wear a mask in Clay County Correctional Facility, the West Central Regional Juvenile Center and Clay County Detox, until otherwise directed by the CDC and MDH.
The State of Minnesota Supreme Court Order Governing the Continuing of the Minnesota Judicial Branch should be referred to regarding masking and social distancing within the Clay Courthouse.
